Proposed changes to parking in Chesham - phase 2

Following the completion of parking restrictions in September 2017, there have been a lot of concerns about parking for residents of:

  • Broad Street
  • Bellingdon Road
  • Kirtle Road

Due to this, a number of residents have asked for alternative proposals to be developed.

Chesham Town Council began an informal consultation to see if there is support for the new proposals. We also wanted to ensure the formal consultation and implementation proceeds with local agreement.

Update: The Formal Consultation was undertaken by Buckinghamshire County Council from 22 November to 13 December 2018. All responses are now being considered and the Key Decision Report is being drafted.


After meeting with the Working Group and discussing the informal consultation on the 19 September 2018, the councils have agreed the proposals below:

Kirtle Road

To implement double yellow lines on the west side of the road and refresh the current lines including the turning point. In the absence of a clear majority, it was agreed not to make Kirtle road a permit parking zone

Broad Street

Broad Street residents between the Elgiva Theatre roundabout and Sunnyside Road without off street parking will be issued Zone C permits.

The current "1 hour waiting bays" will be made shared use with Zone C residents. Discretionary permits will still be available and assessed individually.

White Hill / Cheyne Walk

Double yellow lines on White Hill j/w White Hill Service Road (east and west) and on junction of Cheyne Walk j/w White Hill.

Sunnyside Road

Implement double yellow lines on west side of Sunnyside Road / Higham junction.

Wesley Hill

Shared use of the current "1 hour waiting" bays in Wesley Hill with Zone C permit holders.

Chartridge Lane j/w Lowndes Avenue

Implement double yellow lines on the junction Chartridge Lane/Lowndes Avenue.

Chartridge Lane j/w Penn Avenue

Implement double yellow lines on the junction Chartridge Lane/Penn Avenue.

Harding Road

Refresh of yellow lines.
